Welcome to the home page of the Siouxland Samplers Quilt Guild. We are a group of quilters, quilt lovers, fiber artists, fabric collectors, and late-night sewers. We enjoy making quilts, sleeping under quilts, or just looking at quilts. The expertise and support and inspiration we receive from each other make our group one you'll want to belong to. If you would like to find out more about what we do as a group, see the "About Us" link.
Show & Tell

Please come on out to our September Guild meeting at 7:00 on September 8th.
Our program presenter for the meeting will be Gloria Bernadt from Hebron, NE. She is "crazy" for crazy quilts and will show us some of her special quilts that have won awards at the Nebraska State Fair.
If you haven't already made plans to attend the annual American Quilter's Society Quilt Show in Des Moines, it's time to start thinking about it. The dates are October 1st through October 4th this year. You will be so glad you took advantage of a quilt show this prestigious and this close to Sioux City.
Happy Quilting. We'll see you on the 8th!
Please join us at 7:00 pm at the First Presbyterian Church on 6th & Nebraska for our August 11th Guild Meeting.
The program will feature one of our Guild members, Barbara Phillips, giving us tips and techniques for machine quilting on our home sewing machines. You won't want to miss her presentation. We'll also be talking about the theme for our 2015 Quilt Show, as well as our choice of "Winter Wonderland" for the theme for our 2014 Festival of Trees Christmas tree. We would like another greeter and a Welcome person for the August meeting, so please consider volunteering if you can come to the meeting a little earlier than usual.
We'll see you there!
It's potluck time again, so that means our July meeting will start at 6:30 pm instead of 7:00. Please check the current newsletter to find out the details about the potluck and the president's challenge "Life's A Beach".
Please note that the correct food suggestion for the potluck is as follows: If your last name starts with A thru J, bring dessert; last names K thru R, bring a main dish; and last names S thru Z, bring a salad.
Please also mark your calendars for the August 9th "Sweat Shop" where guild members will make quilts for the Cancer Center. We promise you'll have fun and you don't actually have to sweat if you don't want to! See the newsletter for details, or contact June DeVries if you have questions.
We'll see you soon.
